Having a fulfillment center close to home can simplify things for your business, since it makes shipping inventory to your warehouse easy. But using multiple fulfillment centers has its advantages as well. With multiple fulfillment centers, you can expand your shipping reach, ship faster, reduce shipping costs, and ultimately offer your customers better shipping choices.

ShipBob is a 3PL (third-party logistics) provider that can offer Pennsylvania-based ecommerce businesses the best of both worlds. We have a fulfillment center in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, along with a national network of fulfillment centers located in strategic regions and cities across the US. This lets you keep some products close to home, while also distributing your inventory for more efficient shipping.

ShipBob has helped hundreds of businesses speed up growth and improve their shipping options. Read on and find out how we’ll do this for your business.

ShipBob helps ecommerce brands in Pennsylvania

Hear from Pennsylvania-based brand PiperWai on how partnering with ShipBob three years ago has helped them navigate 6,000% growth as a result of their Shark Tank appearance.

“Working with ShipBob has made scaling our business at such a rapid rate feasible and sustainable. Other fulfillment providers have a “This is how it’s done, so take it or leave it!” attitude. ShipBob’s dedication to continuously enhancing their offering by getting feedback from the customer community, as well as their customer service, is unparalleled to other 3PLs.”

Sarah Ribner, Co-Founder, PiperWai

Many of ShipBob’s customers around the country (and world) even choose to use their Pennsylvania fulfillment center, including San Francisco-based Ample Foods. As an emerging company, brand recognition and loyalty were key to their business, so they ultimately decided to move to ShipBob.

“From expanding into a second ShipBob fulfillment center in Pennsylvania, we are excited to be able to offer 65% of our customers with 2-day shipping, up from 32% by only having a single West Coast facility. Soon, this will be 100%. Not only is this better for our customers but we also gain a 13% savings to our bottom line.”

Pablo Gabatto, Business Operations Manager at Ample Foods

What makes ShipBob the best option for Pennsylvania fulfillment

The enhanced shipping capacity you get with a 3PL can transform your business in a number of ways, from providing a better customer experience to boosting your bottom line. Here are a few examples of how ShipBob can benefit your business.

Free up your team’s time

Growing ecommerce businesses often have limited bandwidth for repetitive, manual or labor-intensive tasks like picking, packing, and shipping. ShipBob can take these tasks off your hands so you can sharpen your focus on the mission of the company. Sunglasses brand Rainbow OPTX had 20 hours per day of valuable leadership time spent on fulfillment. After partnering with ShipBob, Rainbow OPTX experienced 115% growth and a 2.5x increase in order volume — none of which needs to be fulfilled by Rainbow OPTX staff.

Speed up growth

Fulfillment is often a bottleneck for ecommerce businesses. You can only grow as fast as you can ship orders, so leveraging the resources and scale of a 3PL can enable much quicker growth. Natural deodorant company PiperWai partnered with ShipBob right after they appeared on Shark Tank. Primed for explosive growth, PiperWai used ShipBob’s fulfillment services, infrastructure, and technology to keep up with 6,000% growth.

Should you outsource shipping to a Pennsylvania fulfillment center?

Most ecommerce businesses simply can’t spare the time, effort, and costs required to build out a distribution infrastructure. If your order volume is increasing fast and you’re struggling to keep up, it’s probably time to hire a 3PL. Here are some clues:

  • You don’t have enough warehouse space to store your products.
  • You need more accurate order and inventory tracking tools.
  • You want to provide faster, more affordable shipping options.
  • You want to ensure orders are fulfilled accurately and as fast as possible.
  • You want to forecast inventory with fewer spreadsheets.
  • Your team spends too much time packing boxes.

If you’re scaling, ShipBob can help with your ecommerce fulfillment needs. Whether that be warehousing, inventory management, getting reduced shipping rates, or fine-tuning your retail order fulfillment process.
